Though not commonly found on the supermarket shelf, Membrillo is practically the national snack of Spain. Enjoyed all over the country, you’ll generally see it served alongside Spain’s other favorite, Manchego (the famous sheep’s milk cheese). Made of quince, Membrillo starts a drab taupe color that changes to a beautiful pink as the quince is cooked. Its handsome, jewel-like quality makes it the perfect addition to a cheeseboard. To capitalize on that wonderful salty-sweet combination, try pairing Membrillo with thinly sliced Salumi or other salty cured meats. Aged cheeses, like Cheddar and Pecorino that have developed that wonderful crunchy salt throughout their interior, also taste amazing with the sweet paste. Try combining all these ingredients (meat, cheese, Membrillo) for a terrific sandwich! We carry Membrillo in several forms. Our traditional wheels of the sweet paste come in various sizes, ranging from small 8oz options to 8lbs!
